Slyde Gives a Big Thumbs Up to the Buddy Bench

In different parts of the world schools and parks are starting to implement the Buddy Bench concept. The Buddy Bench is a great tool to help children make friends and learn how to recognize when someone around them is feeling left out. The purpose of the Buddy Bench is for a child who is feeling left out to sit on the bench; sitting there will let the other children know they are feeling left out or are wanting someone to play with.

The bench can be used in many different ways, but the main purpose is to prevent children from feeling left out and to promote friendship between all of the children.

By putting something like the Buddy Bench in your play space gives the children a positive attitude towards caring and supporting others around them and helping them learn how to resolve conflict and loneliness in a safe and fun way.

Below are links to Buddy Bench videos created to help spread friendship to everyone.
